    Yep, that's exactly what they're doing. With a quick hand on the stop
button, I captured the content of browser_type.html from IE 5.01:

if(navigator.appName=="Netscape") { if(navigator.appVersion.substring(0,1)
>= "3")

type.html"); } }

else { document.write("<META HTTP-EQUIV=REFRESH CONTENT=\"0;
URL=http://my.netscape.com/badbrowser.tmpl\">\n"); }
